Digital Decay from Claire L. Evans on Vimeo.

In this weird age of data, with the buzz and menace around it, the value of data is reliant on our ability to store it and process it. Ultimately, though, even our digital processes have material properties. We write to hard drives and transfer data over optical fiber, but we also compress information. This beautiful project by Claire L. Evans, Digital Decay, is an animation of saving an image continuously, over and over again, hundreds of times.

Despite all of the other chat apps out there, this is my favorite at the moment. It’s not Yo, it’s not Slingshot, it's not SnapChat—it’s Fuse!

Once the timer ends, the image disappears forever. It creates a playful sense of urgency, delight and mystery.

Billed as “your personal brain trainer,” Elevate is a beautifully designed learning app. You can play up to three free challenges a day. All of them are fun, easy to use and absolutely gorgeous. They’re designed to help improve vocabulary, reading and listening focus, writing abilities and information-processing speed. The great thing is, they actually work! I can sense that it’s helped me improve my vocabulary and writing skills. I’ve already found myself applying lessons from the game when writing emails at work.
